Take a stroll down Memory Lane with this wonderful collection of photographs of Britain in the 1950s, a time when everybody knew their neighbours, kids made their own fun playing out on the streets, and pram racing and roller skating were all the rage.
Just looking through this book makes you realize how British we were in the 1950s. Indeed, there were so many similarities between our countries that many of the images could be mistaken as Australian.
Over 90 photographs are accompanied by a witty and moving commentary describing a golden decade when the world was discovering a new sense of fun and freedom. Rationing came to an end, kitchens came with 'all mod cons'. In 1957 the Prime Minister announced that the British had never had it so good and this book illustrates just what he meant.
A companion volume to Born in the 40s and Born in the 60s, this is guaranteed to produce a golden glow in every reader, and a perfect family gift.
They say a photo is worth a thousand words and if you were born in the 40s or 50s you will get so much pleasure from this little book!
